RBC Race for the Kids, October 17-18, 2020
Global Virtual Race supporting youth charities around the world

Help get a kid's great future started today!

Imagine a place where who you are, where you're from or the circumstances that surround you don’t determine your access to experiences or opportunities. Through your support, Boys & Girls Clubs of America are making that vision a reality — in your community and communities around the world. Our mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

Today, we are committed more than ever, to ensure Club staff, members, families, and communities have the resources and support they need to navigate these uncertain times during the COVID-19 pandemic. Boys & Girls Clubs are stepping up to address the continuation of urgent needs – food security, childcare and virtual programming – and leading the way to help youth and communities overcome the long-term impacts of the crisis – safety and well-being, learning loss, and racial and social equity.

For more than 160 years, Boys & Girls Clubs have navigated times of crisis and uncertainty to serve kids and teens. Now more than ever we need our advocates, donors, and champions like you to join us.

RBC Global Virtual Race for the Kids, supporting youth
charities around the world

Over the past decade, the RBC Race for the Kids series has grown to include 17 charitable events raising more than $57 million for our local charity partners. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic means most of our physical Races can’t happen so welcome to the first ever RBC Global Virtual Race for the Kids. Our ambition is to create the world’s biggest, virtual family fun run in support of over 30 youth charities to help them continue their incredible work at this challenging time.

Ensuring the Great Futures of America's Youth

Before COVID-19, 11 million kids left school with nowhere to go each day. That’s when Boys & Girls Clubs would open their doors — with a network of more than 4,700 sites located in rural communities, urban neighborhoods, in schools and public housing, on Native lands and on U.S. military installations worldwide, there’s a Club in nearly every community. We never take a single approach to help kids succeed. It takes caring mentors, such as our trained Club staff. It takes a safe place, like our Clubs that are consistently there for the kids they serve, virtually and in-person. It takes innovative, quality programs designed to empower youth to excel in school and lead healthy, productive lives. We do whatever it takes to ensure all kids have a great future.

Boys & Girls Clubs create safe, fun spaces for kids to succeed.
